Major makeover planned for Denton County shopping center

Trademark Property is renovating the Shops at Highland Village in Denton County.
Fort Worth-based Trademark Property Co. – the same company that’s remaking Dallas’ Victory Park shopping center – is going to revamp a Denton County retail project.
Trademark said Tuesday that it will do a “multi-million dollar renovation” of the Shops at Highland Village shopping center at FM 2499 and FM 407 in south Denton County.
The 352,000-square-foot, 16-building shopping center is anchored by an AMC 12-screen theater, Whole Foods Market and Barnes & Noble Booksellers. The open-air center also has 11 restaurants and 60 specialty shops.
AEW Capital Management owns the property, which is operated by Trademark. The center opened in late 2007.
Trademark’s upgrades to the property will include common area improvements, new landscaping, updated facades and new signage.
“We want to make the Shops at Highland Village a more inviting environment to shop, dine and gather, which is why we are investing in these upgrades,” CEO Terry Montesi said in a statement. “ We want to keep our core customers happy, and attract new visitors and tenants, and give people reasons to visit.”
